Throwing a watching party for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton doesn't have to be a royal pain.

But with the wedding scheduled for 6 a.m. East Coast time you probably are going to find that plenty of coffee is, so to speak, your cup of tea.

Patra Wroten, who lives in the Washington, D.C., area and writes about parties and other occasions on her blog, I Do Declare, has found a workaround to the inconvenient timing – a slumber party for some friends.

(This is the second of two columns on the methods of Robin McKenzie.)

Like millions of people who suffer back pain, I rely on a system developed by Robin McKenzie, a physiotherapist in New Zealand.

Since I was 30 years old, I have hurt my lower back many times. Eventually, I suffered from sciatica, a toothache-like pain that runs down my left buttock to my ankle. This is caused by a bulging lumbar disc.

AL ZAGOFSKY/SPECIAL TO THE TIMES NEWS Artist and photographer Anne Martino paints designs of soccer ball and flowers on the bellies of pregnant women, arranges the women in a set that captures the theme, and takes a photograph as a fun memory.

Artist and photographer Anne Martino of Lake Harmony said to the owner of Deezines Flowers & Gifts on Route 209 in Jim Thorpe, "I have a really odd request."

"We've heard everything," owner Denise Sebelin replied.

"You haven't," Martino said. "I have this lady who's pregnant and I want to paint flowers on her belly and I want to pose her in front of a floral shop with flowers all around her and take some pictures of her.

"You're right, I've never heard that before," Sebelin agreed. She watched the belly painting and the photo shoot.
